    the force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having mass.
    Gravity is a byproduct of mass. mass = a compression of matter's paths(both inside and between the atoms)so that a measurable amount of matter fits in a measurable amount of space
    increased mass leads to an increased compression so that more matter fits into the same space, with the result that to move through that mass, necessarally takes more energy (or more time?).this is due to the mass warping the space (by the abovementioned compression) it travels through
    if not enough energy to move through and hence past then it must, by default, join. thus are gravity and equilibrium maintained
    gravity is my enemy....i keep dropping things.

    gravity is your savior because otherwise when you let go it may have whacked you in the face
